Always dependable for fall in Texas is the State Fair. The State Fair of Texas was established in 1886, and has been going strong ever since. The Fair runs for 24 consecutive days, which makes it the longest-running fair in the nation, as well as one of the largest. Over the years, the Fair has continued to evolve while maintaining its original purpose of education, promoting agriculture, and community involvement through quality family-friendly entertainment. Each of the 131 years of running has come with a theme for the year’s fair. The 2017 theme is “Celebrating Texans.” This year is also the 100th anniversary of America entering the first World War, and the Fair will have special exhibits honoring this fact. An exhibit at the Hall of State will feature, “Texas in the First World War,” which will give an in-depth look into the roles that both Texas and the United States played throughout World War I. As always, the Fair will also have tons of fun activities for the whole family. Xpogo, the extreme sports show featuring pogo professionals, will return this year. There will be a daily Xpogo performance in Chevrolet Park Plaza, which also hosts the Lords of Gravity extreme basketball team. The Texas State Fair would not be itself without some fried food. The 2017 Big Tex Choice awards have already been announced with winners like a funnel cake bacon cheeseburger and a deep fried chicken noodle soup on a stick. If going to the Fair is a tradition for your family, the time is here.
